Tours of this property are cancelled. From what I seen with my own eye, I can see why. Although the owner maybe in his 80's the property is run down and very neglected. It does not add any charm but makes you wonder "why on earth would you want to venture inside?" Let alone pay any money to step over... More

My friend and I visited recently for an overnight paranormal investigation as part of a group. Although so many people have written poor reviews about this place regarding its poor state ect, as so many other decent understanding people have mentioned, this amazing building is around 1,000 years old! Yes, there is some clutter and hoarding ect but I believe... More

We just called in on spec but the old chap who lives there was happy to show us around. Its a bit of a miss mass with rooms that look as if they are being used to store good that you would find in a charity shop and rooms that take you back in time. Its a shame that there... More

If you want ghosts you would want to get a few spirits from the local pub, after reading all the hype on the internet you would believe the devil lives there, sorry but you will be very disappointed, the so called business is run by John who is only in it for how many people you can get into his...

This is a very old inn, once frequented by the Mayflower passenger Stephen Hopkins. The day I visited there was no one hoe.

Ignore the hording. Ignore the supernatural goings on. Concentrate on the wonderful old man who invites you into his home. He shares the history of his life with you. He shares his philosophy with you. He shares his knowledge of a really remarkable ancient building with you. Then you get a personally conducted tour of the premises. Anyone visiting -... More

I believe the place may have been haunted in the past but nothing is happening here. Great to look around to explore the history but this is it. Would be great turned into a pub

I have known of the Ancient Ram for over 30 years and have been an occasional visitor throughout that period . The owner John Humphries is a 'character ' to say the least and has a wide range of interests from trains (he used to be an engine driver) and motorcycles . Bearing in mind that this is his 'home'...

Fantastic place with a lot of history, and John's stories are great. Claimed to be one of the most haunted places in England ! If your not a paranormal investigator it is well worth a visit, but be prepared for the quirky

We went with a paranormal group and had some great activity. Table levitation in the barn, the Ouija board was very active as well as the k2 meters and white noise spirit box. Did meet John but felt like the Inn had so much more to offer, far too much hoarding prevented us going into some areas/rooms. Overal I did... More
